Energy firm aids PNG community

Energy firm looks to aid impoverished, but resource-rich Papua New Guinea.

    Papua New Guinea is an impoverished country rich in natural resources.

    Last year, it signed a deal with Exxon Mobil for a $15bn liquefied natural gas project.

    Other resources projects in PNG have been criticised for not helping local communities.

    But Exxon's local partner, Oil Search, says it is striking a balance - even providing services to the local community that the national government has failed to deliver.
